Summary

Eric - part-time king, quasi-avatar, and unconventional wizard - has an epic quest before him.

He must return to his lost kingdom to save it, slay a creature claiming to be a god, and navigate the terrible risks of a paradox that could undo everything!

And to top it off, he's trying to raise a daughter.

Nobody said being a vampire was going to be easy, but none of this was in the brochure!

Another brilliant addition to the Nightlord series

Well where do I start, we now have Eric the parent, protecting his adopted daughter, while watching her grow, some new interesting characters along with some of the old ones, Bronze and Firebrand are still as eventful as ever!

I love Éric but.. old people ramble

Huge fan of this series since the beginning but it's growing repetitive. Not my favorite. You know how usually there is action scenes then a sequence were Éric "gets things à thousands things done" and explains how it works. But then, suddenly!!! Well I'm still waiting on something to happen in this one.

book well named

been a long time fan of the series. don't know if I just like listing to Sean's voice or if the story is good. slow story progression as usual with a lot of fillers and character development but not much done. still a good listen. hopefully there will be more progression next time.

Another great book.

It's another book where you wish you could be there living the life Eric does. Would I make different decisions than what Eric did? Yeah probably. Would it inevitably blow up in my face as I didn't think it through like Eric does... most certainly.

Its one of those series you can just put on and get lost in, infact if done correctly it would make for a fantastic TV show.

Continue this fantastic series Mr Whited, and thanks.

Excellent narration!

SR did a great job with narration but still, I fell asleep a few times. It's the same thing over and over again in different places. This is the only series I've read where the MC has a long and tedious metal monologue, let's just end it all.

Kinda good? Mostly not? Edit maybe?

Boy I wish he would’ve described the shock and feeling of Phoebe growing up and living on her own more. Just kidding. Or am I kidding? Or is it kidding if it’s not funny? Or am I just not funny? Or am I I just copying the authors writing technique to make a point about how easy it is to fill a book with 70% garbledygook?
Inexplicably the mass murderers daughter can’t convince herself of the necessity to kill a mind controlling mass murder. Could it just be a crappy plot device? yeah probably
Anyway I might buy the next one if I’m in the mood to listen to the mind ramblings of an author pretending to be a vampire.

Hi

I don’t like how he treats His daughter he’s too protective and is pretty much telling her she can do whatever she wants and it sounds like he wouldn’t care if she was a criminal or a tyrant. He spoiled her too much. Very little is happening in this book and I hate her no killing thing she’s probably gonna die. I hate how lazy he is and nothings exciting really exciting is happening. He never really explains why she should not do this or that he just lets her do whatever she wants. I wish he change A bit I wish he’s confidant not lazy and less self loathing he just seems like a disappointment. He seems like he does not care about anything except his daughter and a few friends and he seem’s arrogant and he does not seem smart sometimes and why in this book does he seem like a wizard instead of at night Lord. I think the book kind of went downhill because of his daughter he’s less killing bad people and just seems like a lazy person. In the next book could you at least make him more confident in him self and less depressed and not lazy and make him into something different instead of a depressed vampire. all the other books were exciting but this one was bad I wish he would go out and find trouble instead of pointing out he could die and such of course he can and all the things he does he can die from. I wish he has an adventurous side to him I liked Mary she makes him go on exciting adventures. it just seems like he’s not really doing anything in this book. I just want him to act like a night lord it seems like this book was not finished when it was published. I don’t like how he thinks, he thinks because he cause’s trouble that he should do nothing at all go be a hermit. I don’t like this him right now I hate his daughter it made the book boring it was a good book but it would be better without the daughter he barely interact with anyone only those he knows instead of making new friends. Please I’m begging you make the next book better because this one was not that great it was good and bad at the same time. I know making a book is hard and all but at least make the next book exciting or better and the book was too focused on his daughter.

Boring

This author likes to ramble and ramble and ramble. His prior books he'd at least toss in a little action. This one however is 99.9% boring rambling nonsense and virtually nothing interesting happens. Sure he has a few plot lines that could have lead somewhere, but nope he decided to just keep his main character rambling on and on. If I'm desperate maybe I'll continue. Never was my favorite series, this was by far the worse of them.

Why?

Don't waste your credit or money. The depressed Vampire/Wizard has gotten old. For 30 hrs you will be subjected to the nonsense of Eric's daughter's life. What a terrible audio book.

My least favorite book of the series.

I can't seem to get any sort of attachment to Touta (did I spell that right?). I just don't care about the place or any of the characters. I was also really annoyed by the daughter ( to the point that I can't seem to think of her name right now) and her refusal to take the very good advice her pop kept giving her. Freaking annoying character! I found myself skipping forward every time Halar/Eric was talking to his other self. I just can't listen to god Halar explain the same things over and over again, followed by begging for more divinity wheels. All in all, this book was a bit disappointing in my opinion. That said, I do plan on continuing to follow this series in hopes the next one is better.

Never disappoints

We’re seven books in already and hours of content have flown by. Fugue lives up to the hype of the previous books and then some. I love this series.

More of the same old perfection

It’s the same thing as all the other books, just with a little less of Eric sliding into lonely, depressed insanity.

So, in other words, if you’ve gotten this far in the series, read this. It’s great. It’s quite literally more of the best.

I do enjoy this series... this book, not so much.

The use of the N-word was pointless and poorly done, it had no relevance to the story or plot and should've just been left out. Eric doesn't seem to have had any character growth, and most of the book was a lot of rambling and restating things that he's already said. I wasn't a big fan of the last book either, but I thought him ending up with a daughter would make this one more interesting,.. instead she was used more as a filler piece. The ending of this book does give me some hope for the next though.
